We will keep everyone updated here so Mark and Julie so they can focus on Cam.
On Tuesday, Oct 3rd Cameron collided with another player at football practice. He was unable to move and taken by ambulance to the hospital. He sustained a spinal cord injury called central cord syndrome. He has greatly decreased sensation from the neck down and has some paralysis in his arms and legs. He has regained some movement in his left leg and minimal movement in his right leg and right hand. Per this “central cord syndrome,” Cam's legs have shown some improved strength and motion, while arms and hands much less. A long road of therapy lies ahead of Cameron, and hope to be able to regain motion and strength. Cam continues to be courageous. He will be at Craig hospital for the next 3 months. We have created this fundraiser to help cover the costs of things like medical bills, possible remodeling the house to prepare for Cam to come home and the many months of therapy that is to come after Cam is home from the hospital.
Mark has known for awhile that his company will be dissolving his division and he would be laid off. He found out a few weeks ago his last day is 10/13/17. (Update:10-20-17) God has answered some prayers in an amazing way with Mark’s job his company has extended his employment for several months.
Julie has decided she needs to take a leave of absence to take care of Cameron. Please consider helping this amazing family!www.youcaring.com/cameronshelley
